The vision of CHIRON is to complement and, in the long term, replace CMOS by spin wave computing circuits.

As first steps towards this vision, CHIRON's objectives are:

  • The development of magnetoelectric and multiferroic nanoresonators as spin wave transducers. 

  • The development of waveguides for spin waves with sub-micrometre wavelength. 

  • The demonstration of logic inverters as well as three-input majority gates based on the magnetoelectric and multiferroic transducers and waveguides.

  • The design of hybrid spin wave–CMOS circuits and benchmarking against standard CMOS using calibrated compact models of transducers and logic gates as well as interconnects.
